I have been dealing with a lot of change in my life recently. I started a new job at the end of August, I got a new phone, I moved into a new house at the end of September, and I traded in my TiVo for an AT&T U-verse DVR. With that last change, I also thought I had to give up something, my subscriptions to my favorite IPTV shows!
On my TiVo I could get all of the coolest Revision3 shows easily, and right on my TV. I would just browse through my list of recorded shows and there they were, all convenient and everything. Of course my U-verse DVR doesn’t have an option to download video podcasts, so I had to look for better alternatives.
I could watch them on my laptop, but that isn’t always convenient. Usually I am doing work on my laptop while my wife watches TV, and my IPTV watching will interrupt her. So I decided I should put it on my phone. At first I tried Dr. Podder from the Home Brew channel, but that didn’t work quite right for me. Not sure what was up with it. I could play audio podcasts fine, but videos would error out.
I finally discovered an app that worked perfectly! It is called MediaFly. With MediaFly I can login to their website, search for all of my favorite shows like:
If you don’t see your favorite IPTV show, you can also import the show’s RSS feed. For example, if you want to watch our Bauer-Power videos on your iPhone or Palm Pre, you can simply add our RSS feed url which is:
Once you add your favorite shows online, they will simply sync up with your device! No fiddling with cell phone buttons, and clunky cut and paste!
iPhone? Did I say iPhone? Yes I did! MediaFly is not just for us Palm Pre users. You can add MediaFly to the following devices:
- Palm Pre
- Roku Digital Player
- Creative Zen
- Logitech Squeezebox
- Popcorn Hour
If you prefer to watch your video podcasts on your computer, you can also download their MediaFly SyncClient free of charge! Oh wait, everything on MediaFly is free, so why wouldn’t the software?
Do you have a different Podcast app you prefer? What is it? Is it free? I want to know about it, so hit us up in the comments!
